For me, the RAM was cheap to begin with. Then an additional 30.00 dollars off for the combo deal, when I bought it, and it was a no brainier.

That may be directx, or VGA driver related. I would try to update, or rollback them, to another version.

Hi All,

I just got this Gene-Z last week, a new toy instead of my old MSI P67a-DG65. I have played with it for some days and suddenly it began to shut down in windows. The light in the start and reset button on the board is off. Actually all the light is off and I cant get it to boot up again. I reset the bios, pulled the battery off over the night and this morning it could boot again! I took it to windows which went fine. Had to take a piss, and when I came back it was off again and impossible to start up.

I got light in my GFX, and I can start Fans manually so my PSU (Enermax Revomax 1500w) is running fine. What else can be the problem? Did any of you experience these difficulties to get the board up and running?

Further more I got QVL approved memory.

If I trashed the CPU, will it then be doing things like that? I mean, there is a diode on the mobo that shows if there is CPU issues. I ask because my pump died the other day, and it might have damaged the CPU.

I have packed it up for RMA now, but want to know if other have had similar issues.



Frustrating!

Yes it is... some don't mind spending 50-70$ more but they don't know if they will benefit of it or not, they just buy because price is not exagarated.
post #1838 of 7108
Meh, I can't afford another £50 1.35v kit. 8GB will have to do.
post #1839 of 7108
Memory is cheap right now, so why not max it out. Newegg had 16Gb for $90 the other day. Fry's had 16Gb for $60 yesterday. Sure you could do just 8Gb and be more than fine, but with ram being so cheap, why not?

Here is a little pic of my baby in action. I'm really liking the ROG connect. I never got around to using it on the M4E when I had it, but this gene sure is nice.
